Yes, that’s a real suitcase. Williams British Handmade uses English bridle leather to produce these limited-edition, bespoke luggage pieces. According to their site, the company dedicates itself to the history of fine craftsmanship: Each brass frame design is handmade by a metal worker, every stitch is done by hand using traditional saddle stitching.
I think these designs are just brilliant. I’m not sure I would ever take it outside if I owned it, unless of course I needed to travel by old-fashioned locomotive or a little biplane on a romantic jaunt through Europe, wearing a fur-collar coat and gloves. That seems like the most appropriate setting for such luxurious artful luggage. Purchase inquiries can be made here.
